The Father of Vaccines?

Delusional free verse

The father of vaccines; the father, of vaccines?

An abusive father who beat his kids
washed them in bleach
confiscated their toys, storing them
out of reach in clear eyesight
further punishing the children
out of ill will and spite.

He invites his friends round to gloat
who even reach for the toys teasing the children
as they reach out with grateful hands
hope in their eyes they may just get
what was promised to them before abusive dad
took away what was gifted by others.

Delusional father tries his best to blame the kids
along with their friends for his deranged state of mind
while beating their mother into acceptance, he only has their
interest at heart.
This narcissistic, petulant child
who never grew up will burn the house down,
his legacy nothing but cinders.

Thank you as always Meg for giving my words a platform. πŸ™πŸ™
